    Ahmaud Arbery; racist killing and attempted cover up.

    Rednecks and Trump voters do more bad things, again. Ambushing and killing an unarmed jogging black man.

    You know, not everybody follows the news from the US all that closely.

    Do you think you could at least provide a link to a news article or video clip or something that might give those of us that don't follow every word that comes out of the media's collective mouth a clue as to what you're on about?

    There's a lot more to the story than a black man killed while jogging. That narrative is pretty old now. He was seen/caught trespassing in a home under construction, in a neighborhood that had experienced a rash of burglaries and he ran away when he was discovered. 911 was called and 2 men attempted to stop him and detain him until the police arrived. One of the men was a retired Police officer and had a license to carry a gun. Ahmaud stupidly (IMO) attacked and attempted to wrestle the gun away and was shot multiple times.

    Lot's of things went horribly wrong here with a lot of mistakes on both sides.

    The guy wasn't innocently jogging through the neighborhood like the left claims. But I think most would agree he shouldn't have been shot.

    Although that rhetoric has been used as a defense, nothing so far can even come close to justifying his murder or the actions taken that lead up to it. If you think someone is behaving suspiciously, pull out your cell and call the police. And you don't draw your gun on someone as a civilian UNLESS they threaten you first or they are in your house. If I was being detained by two citizens toting guns I would be afraid for my life, and that will provoke 'fight or flight'. Ahmed chose to try to fight.

    A house under construction? Give me a break. I've wondered through houses under construction myself just out of curiosity as to what was being built.

    You guys are really coming down on the wrong side of this. Be careful. A Black person out jogging shot and killed for 'suspicious' behavior by white citizens is NOT going to play well anywhere, and the likelihood this was racially motivated is huge. That young man was unarmed. And he would not have been dead if those men had not tried to detain him using deadly force. AFAIK, there is nothing he had done or is accused of doing that justified the civilian use of deadly force at that moment in time.

    Ahmoud has my sympathy, and I hope the two killers get justice.

    He wasn't innocently jogging through the neighborhood lol. This is why we can't have nice things because people like you lie or exaggerate the narrative. The sad part is that the MSM plays off these false narratives to stoke racial and political tension for clicks. I"m not sure why YOU do it though.

    There’s not much defending the action of these two men though. There’s little to no justification for the killing.

    Honestly, other than being contrarian to the narrative, what’s your stake in it?

    You are correct...

    Why can't we just agree the guy wasn't innocently jogging through the neighborhood (as the left narrative claims), but he shouldn't have been shot. What's so hard about that? Well, because it's not racially sensational enough to say that, so we have to exaggerate the narrative for either emotional, political, or profit reasons. And it's sickening.
